Is Woodstock 50 Headed to Maryland?

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - The troubled "Woodstock 50" anniversary concert may be coming to Maryland in less than a month.

Producers of the highly anticipated event say they have secured a dealt to bring the three day event to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. Woodstock 50's main financier backed out earlier this year. Organizers have not been able to secure the original site in Bethel, New York, nor the site of "Woodstock 99" in Rome, New York.

The venue is smaller than what was promised originally, but local officials are welcoming. Howard County Executive Calvin Ball said, "because of our investment in Merriweather Post Pavilion and the Symphony Woods, we are able to absorb people coming in. You know, the original Woodstock was looking at doing something that was going to be about 50-thousand people. And they saw so much more and they were able to make it happen. And Howard County, we have the vision, we have the fortitude to make things happen."

The lineup of performers has not been finalized. The concert is scheduled for August 16 through August 18.
